'I DIDN'T KNOW THERE WAS CAKE ETIQUETTE'

HEY FOLKS

SO IT WOULD SEEM THAT SOMETHING TRULY FANTASTIC/SURREAL
IS KICKING OFF IN MY HOME TOWN NEXT WEEK…

WHEN MY DAD FIRST STARTED TO TELL ME OF THE PLANS TO HOUNOR MY 40TH BIRTHDAY
I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE A RATHER SMALL AFFAIR

BUT AS THE WEEKS HAVE GONE ON AND THE ARTICLES IN THE SENTINEL (LOCAL NEWSPAPER THAT I READ ON LINE)
HAVE BECOME ALMOST A DAILY OCCURRENCE IT SEEMS THAT THINGS HAVE SOME WHAT SNOW BALLED…

I'VE GONE FROM HAVING A SENTIMENTAL WARM FEELING IN MY HEART
TO NOW HAVING A FULL ON PANIC ''WHAT IF NO ONE TURNS UP!''

I ACTUALLY CAN'T GET MY HEAD AROUND IT ….

ROADS NAMED AFTER MY SONGS, A PLAQUE PUT UP IN THE PARK I USED TO PLAY IN, A MUSEUM ATTRACTION WITH MY MEMORABILIA A MINI FESTIVAL !?!
ECT ECT ECT ECT ….

IT ALL FEELS LIKE ITS HAPPENING TO SOME ONE ELSE
WHO COMES FROM THE SAME PLACE I COME FROM
SOMEONE WHO'S FAR MORE DESERVING

WHEN I CATCH MY BREATH OR STILL MY MIND FOR A MOMENT THE MAGNITUDE OF THIS GREAT HONOUR
FILLS ME WITH IMMENSE PRIDE AND A FOREBODING TO NOT LET YOU ALL DOWN

I WEAR WHERE IM FROM LIKE A BADGE OF HONOUR
ALWAYS HAVE DONE ALWAYS WILL DO
(I LITERALLY HAVE BURSLEMS CREST TATTOOED ON MY LEFT ARM)
INFACT NOWHERE HAS TRULY FELT LIKE HOME SINCE I LEFT
IAM A STOKIE BORN AND BREAD

UNFORTUNATELY I WONT BE ABLE TO BE THERE FOR THE CELEBRATIONS MYSELF SADLY.
BECAUSE UNBEKNOWNST TO ME MY WIFE HAS PLANNED A RATHER LARGE AND INTRICATE
SURPRISE FEW DAYS WHICH DUE TO THE CELEBRATION SHE HAD TO TELL ME ABOUT …
SHE'S GUTTED IM GUTTED AND WE ALL WISH THAT WE COULD BE THERE
ALAS I'VE ASLO GOT A WORK TRIP TO AUSTRALIA IMMEDIATELY AFTER ..WHICH MAKES
IT A GEOGRAPHICAL IMPOSSIBILITY COS IM IN LA RIGHT NOW

EITHER WAY PLANS ARE AFOOT FOR ME TO HAVE AN OFFICIAL CELEBRATION
IN STOKE SOON,CAN'T WAIT…!

I CAN ONLY IMAGINE WHAT GRANDMA BERTHA AND GRANDAD JACK
WOULD THINK OF IT ALL

LIKE THEM I HOPE I MAKE YOU ALL PROUD .

BEFORE I START BLARTING
IM OFF TO MIX WITH THESE NESH BUGGERS ER' IN LA

HERE'S TO YOU IN OATCAKES AND LOVE
